I get where you are coming from and I partly agree on the underlying sentiment of yours. But we need to keep a certain degree of focus.

What I dislike most about the internet is that everyone suddenly feels entitled to their opinion being presented with a big headline. Every opinion which may not be based on facts has a global audience and can spread... and people get dragged for things that are true/proven or even untrue/disproven.

Not only did she defend and support her pedophile rapist brother & is dating a rapist murderer but she also inappropriately touched underage children herself. Lock the bitch up!

I never got into Monrose aside from their first single.

My #1 girl group has always been No Angels.

Noooo! :( They were THE thing in my early school days. Everybody (and their moms) loved them. Plus, they were sooo huge, collecting endless hits over three years.

Who 20 to 40 year-old German doesn't love their classic hits like "Daylight", "There Must Be An Angel", "Something About Us" or "Still in Love With You" (only blocked by the walking dead Grönemeyer)). And they also had the talent with Vanessa being a true songwriter.

fun fact: The original member Nadja was part of Mariah's background choir in Berlin just last December.

That was really astonishing to see... especially after the AIDS scandal. I was always rooting for her. I still am. She still looks amazing.

The No Angels have a special place in my heart. I wish they would come back.

No Angels were the perfect girlband. It's a pity that their comeback in the late 00s kind of failed - the problem, imo, was that the material was way too weak. A big comeback can only work if you show a totally different musical side of yours and that's just what the people wanna hear from you at the moment (see Sarah Connor's German album) or you pick up where you left but do it even 3 times better. In No Angels' case, neither 'Destiny' nor 'Welcome to the Dance' contained any material that left a 'WOW' effect - miles away from their signature hits.
Besides, I always feel like girl- and boybands tend to see their job as 'a side project we do for a few years'. Therefore, as soon as any trouble occurs (which happens in every job), many bands immediately think that it's time to call it quits - instead of seeing it as a challenge that needs to be overcome and that serve as a common memory that ends up strengthening the work within the team. In the case of No Angels: Each one could have had their little solo moments, but they could still be where they used to be if they believed in the band and always put it first instead of thinking that their personal brand was bigger than the band's. In 80% of all girl- and boybands, this ego trip is bound to fail eventually. See the Sugababes: They used to be so successful for a while, but let their egos destroy the band. Where are the members now? Doing radio and reality TV shows - yes, that break up was sooo worth it.

Do you want more material possessions, ain’t nothing
Do want more, can you commit to be my everything?
Do you want more? Baby convince me with the words you sing
If you wanna be more to me, you must proceed with caution
Caution, caution, caution
Caution, caution, caution
Caution, caution, yeah
Proceed with caution

Do you think R Kelly controversy will effect Gaga's chances to be nominated?

I don't think it will. It has nothing to do with the movie.
And the voters are not teenagers posting on Instagram.

No, but she's less likely to win the thing.

I think I'd enjoy being a judge if you're looking for a judge - always interested in discovering new music.

Might be worth opening a new topic and gauging interest specifically as many people won't see this here.

Any Joe Dassin fans here? His voice is so soothing and his songs Et Si Tu N'exitais Pas and L'été Indien are two of the best French songs ever.
